Riverside High School
Alex is a senior with a 3.81 GPA. He was captain of both the soccer and football teams, a leader both on and off the fields. After receiving three concussions, his high school athletic career as a senior was ended. The NFHS Concussion course was very beneficial to Alex and his parents. This was a very hard time in this young man’s life and Alex’s service to his school and community became a focal point. He volunteers at two elementary schools as a mentor, works with the local Meal on Wheels program and assists with Riverside Special Education students in their coffee shop “all before his school day starts”. He has also achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Alex recently attended the Spartanburg County Shining Stars Prom and spent the evening with an exceptional student who is non-verbal. Alex and his fishing partner are qualifiers for the SAF High School Nationals in Bass Fishing. Alex is the first student of Greenville County Schools with a full-time co-op where he works 40-65 hours a week.
